I've noticed that I've not had enough recipes here recently. Mostly that's because I haven't been cooking anything interesting or outrageous. That's not really a good enough reason for not posting. So here's the a basic recipe, slightly tarted up.

Omelette Fines Herbes

2 eggs
1 heaped teaspoon yogurt
a handful of fresh herbs, roughly chopped
1 knob of butter[1]
salt and pepper

Put the butter into a skillet or frying pan, and heat up. While this is going on, break the eggs into a bowl (don't whisk yet), add the yogurt and season. When the butter is melted and sizzling, pour into the bowl, and put the pan back on the heat. The pan should still have a thin coating of butter on it. Whisk up the egg, yogurt and butter mixture until homogenised, then pour into the pan, still whisking. It should be nice and fluffy. As it cooks, sprinkle the herbs on the omelette (if you're going to fold it, sprinkle them in accordance to how your folds are going to fit). Remember that it continues to cook, even after you take it off the heat. When it's almost done, put it on the plate.
